Default Lacking activity?

I've noticed that I've been sleeping through the entire night without even the slightest disturbance from hedgie wheel or his shoving of things in his cage.
Which sounds kinda backwards and such but I'm a light sleeper that's okay with making sacrifices for a hedgehog
Anyhoo, I don't notice him running on his wheel that much anymore.
I have changed a couple things, I changed his bedding from Aspen to fleece and his food from Pretty Pets (it's what he was being fed before I got him) to Innova Reduced Fat Cat food.
Everytime I check on him he's underneath the spare pieces of fleece, sleeping and sometimes it takes a bit of poking and budging to get him to wake up. The temperature is okay though. So I don't think he's trying to hibernate. But I did get a little panicky this last time.
(Though seeing him stretch and yawn and shake himself off was pretty adorable.)

He's about 2 years old and seemingly sleeping quite a bit and I don't notice him being super active at night, should I be worried.

Default Re: Lacking activity?

Are all the lights off at night time? The reason I ask is sometimes that can be the cause for them staying in their hide outs. It's all based on the individual hedgie but some won't even come out if a night light is on. Computer and tv light flickering can do it also.
